KNOX COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - The Knox County Sheriff's Department is offering extra patrols around homes for people out of town.
The Sheriff's Department believes the patrols could cut down on crime.
People can request the patrols around their homes for when they are on vacation or away from home for another reason.
"With burglaries the way they've been lately, a lot of people don't feel secure leaving their homes and this will maybe offer a little more security, let them know we are keeping on eye on their property for them," said Deputy Roy Gambrel.
To sing up, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Knox County Sheriff's Office at 606-546-3181 with your name, 911 address, description of residence, dates that you will be out of town, and a phone number to contact you in case of issues or questions while you're out of town.
